PAUL WELLER - FAT POP
We may be cursed to be in the midst a global pandemic, buffeted by all of its stresses and pain. But everyone
knows that art provides succour, that music is the most reliable balm. And for many there is further significant
comfort to be drawn from the knowledge that Paul Weller is in the midst of an unbelievably prolific purple
patch. Paul Weller will not let us down when we need him most.
On May 14th, Paul Weller releases his 16 th solo album since his self-titled debut in 1992, his fourth in as many
years and his second in just under twelve months following June 2020’s magnificent, chart-topping On Sunset.
It’s not hyperbole to state that this new album, titled Fat Pop (Volume 1), is among his most compelling
collections, bar none, including all of his era-defining work in the 1970s and ‘80s with The Jam and The Style
Council. It’s an absolute scorcher.
